Revolution IC 2008 squad named

International Cup 2008

The USAFL traveling squad for the 2008 International Cup has been announced. The selection process for the team known as the ‘Revolution’, began at the start of 2006 with their international match against Canada and has included a number of training camps and matches which culminated this past weekend in Florida. The 35 man squad has thirteen members of the 2005 squad which finished third at the International Cup including the 2005 captain Donnie Lucero and James Brunmeier who were both named in the 2005 Australian Football International Cup All Stars Team.

Clubs best represented are San Diego with five players in the squad, Minnesota Freeze four and Denver, Nashville, Milwaukee and Orange County each with three. Some of the better known clubs not represented this time include Atlanta, Chicago, Arizona, New York, Dallas, Kansas City, Louisville, Cincinnati, Portland and Seattle.

Missing from the squad this time around will be the likes of the Ellis brothers and the size and experience of BJ Gambaro and Matt Dainauski (Matt will be Assistant Coach this time around). The US will also miss the experience of Jay Mueller, Dave Thurmond and ‘Bluey’ Carroll who had spent seasons playing football in Melbourne. The Revolution team will be coached by Rob Oliver.
